Guy's a close friend of mine has an evo 2 which we went & pick up a few months ago. It has quite a noticeable crunch changing from 4th to 5th, but since going in for a massive service with cam change, all breaks (with new fluid) the noise has almost gone/very hard to hear now!

Has this happend to any of you/ any ideas of the problem?thought might be box or syncro on way out!

the car has done 172,000 kilometers & runs about 330-350bhp

Also is there a way to change the 4th and 5th gear to make them longer for higher top end! He needs to beat a de-limmited supercharged jag as once he gets to 135-140mph the jag sails past him!

Thanks all

ED :confused:

crunchy gearboxes are a frequent feature on the e1-3's
- often the only cure is a box rebuild especially with the mileage that's on it
- most good transmission companies will rebuild for you
.....you could also try molyslip as a temporary fix

is the bhp quoted from a dyno or a guesstimate ?

the Evo 3 has a better final drive but you'll have to change the box & transfer box as well to take advantage of it / to get the correct g/box ratios

the evo does not have the aerodynamics / power to take it over 140-150mph (on the speedo)
so regret that the Jag will always win on top end.......

The fifth gear synco is so easy to replace its laughable!! Jack up the drivers side of the car and take off the wheel, then the inner wheel arch sheild, and hey presto the end of the box.

Drain the oil and take off the end case, the syncro is fitted to the casing itsself and is simple to replace. Before you do though make sure the two nuts on the end of the shafts are FT as just a small 'NIP' on the nuts can cure the crunch, there is probly a more simple explanation on this in the search function somewhere, good luck.
